Dianthus 'Joy' (Large Plant)

Carnation, Pink

Hardy Perennial

Pinks are evergreen, cushion-like plants, which last for many years in the garden. They love a position in sun, and can cope with some neglect. Try them in difficult areas such as slopes or dry gardens.

Pinks become smothered in fragrant blooms over a long summer period, the more you cut the more that will come, so make sure you enjoy them indoors regularly as cut blooms. Dianthus 'Joy' has an RHS AGM, and is known for its rich colourings and exceptionally long flowering. Height and Spread: 50cm (20").

Culinary note: Use the clove like tasting petals for adding to cakes, either for flavour or decorating, suitable for soups, salads and sauces too. For more details about edible flowers click here.
